Lately I have had this idea in my head about doing a series on my blog called Tour Detroit Thursday. As you all know, earlier in the year I started working in downtown Detroit but what you may not know is how much I am LOVING it. I’ve been in the Metro Detroit area for many years but I had always lived and worked in the suburbs. My current job has given me the ability to see so much more of Detroit than I ever have before and I have been wanting to share all of its awesomeness with you. And yes, Detroit truly is awesome contrary to what you may read or see in the media.
Soon after this idea popped into my head I was approached with an opportunity to write about some theater events downtown and to give away some tickets to you, so I thought this would be the perfect way to kick off my new series!
Did you know that Detroit has a superb theater district?! In terms of seats it ranks second in the world just behind New York City. And on top of that we have some of the most beautiful theaters you will ever see.
Recently I had a night out at the Fox Theatre and I think you will agree with me that there is no denying how absolutely breathtaking it is!
The first event that I have to share with you will actually be at the Fox and it is Broadway’s #1 Holiday hit, Dr. Seuss’ How The Grinch Stole Christmas! The Musical. Who doesn’t like Dr. Seuss and the Grinch?! It will be at the Fox from November 10 – November 15 as part of the Fifth Third Bank Fox Theatre Series. Tickets start at $35 and go up to $75.
Here is some more information on The Grinch:
“Audiences will find their hearts growing a few sizes along with the Grinch’s when they experience the magic of the beloved tale on stage, which features the hit songs “You’re A Mean One Mr. Grinch” and “Welcome Christmas” (written by Albert Hague and Dr. Seuss), from the original animated television special. Max the Dog narrates as the mean and scheming Grinch, whose heart is “two sizes too small,” decides to steal Christmas away from the loveable Whos.”
Are you as excited as I am about The Grinch?! It is a must see show! And lucky for you, I have a family four pack of tickets to give away to one of you for the Tuesday, November 10th showing of The Grinch at the Fox at 7:30pm. To try to win the tickets, all you have to do is use the widget below.
